Okay so my 11-month-old son is of the mixed race (Black, Puerto Rican, Italian & Indian) but he doesn't really look lyke it because he's a lil darker than me (he's more of his fathers color). When he was a couple months old he was lighter than both of us but he's gotten darker. I've noticed that when I mention to people that he's mixed they usually say things lyke "oh but he doesn't look lyke it" or "but hes darker skinned". It bugs the hell outta me sometimes because I feel lyke I have to announce it all the time to people. Yeah he has more black in him than any of the other races but I think he looks mixed. They just assume he's full black because he isn't really light skinned lyke most mixed babies. Should I be offended?
